In these brief videos, noted nephrologist, Dr. Daniel Coyne, discusses the importance of managing phosphorus levels, and how treatment with Velphoro can make a difference for chronic dialysis patients.

Real-world experience with Velphoro

Dr. Coyne discusses how a switch to Velphoro doubled the percentage of patients that achieved phosphorus goal in a real world analysis1

Reducing the daily pill burden

Dr. Coyne discusses the value of low pill burden and flexible administration in helping patients remain on treatment1

It’s time for a different approach

Dr. Coyne summarizes how Velphoro can help dialysis patients take control of managing their phosphorus levels1

Velphoro® (sucroferric oxyhydroxide) is a phosphate binder indicated for the control of serum phosphorus levels in patients with chronic kidney disease on dialysis.


  • Velphoro chewable tablets must be administered with meals. Velphoro should be chewed or crushed. Do not swallow whole.
  • Patients with peritonitis during peritoneal dialysis, significant gastric or hepatic disorders, following major gastrointestinal (GI) surgery, or with a history of hemochromatosis or other diseases with iron accumulation have not been included in clinical studies with Velphoro. Monitor effect and iron homeostasis in such patients.
  • In a parallel design, fixed-dose study of 6 weeks duration, the most common adverse drug reactions to Velphoro chewable tablets in hemodialysis patients included discolored feces (12%) and diarrhea (6%).
  • Velphoro can be administered concomitantly with oral calcitriol, ciprofloxacin, digoxin, enalapril, furosemide, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, hydrochlorothiazide, losartan, metoprolol, nifedipine, omeprazole, quinidine and warfarin. For oral medications where a reduction of bioavailability would be clinically significant consider separating of the timing of administration. Consider monitoring clinical responses or blood levels of the concomitant medications.
